Or rephrased – Stop Loving the World – So says 1 John 2:15 – 17.
Love God – Great Idea!!
The passage talks about 3 things:
– The Lust of the Flesh – Sinful sensual pleasure.
– The Lust of the Eyes – Materialism.
– The Pride of Life – Being proud about your position in the world.
These are not of the Father and are passing away.(Believe it or not)
But, the person who does the Will of God and Loves the Father will live forever! (With Him)
Now that’s the kind of thing I want to pursue and make important in my life. How about you??
It’s so easy to become enamored by the 3 things mentioned above.
After all we live in a culture that is super-saturated with them.
To embrace those things is the norm in these United States.
To go against the grain – yes it’s harder, but good things are worth the pursuit!!
